      I am honored to be associated with it.

      That’s one of the things Willl has said that I might have said, though. What is the purpose of Rhode Island? It’s somewhere in between a cartographing error and my father’s DirecTV plan that he can’t ever change from because he’s grandfathered in to a pretty good deal.Report

        This, of course, is how we can tell it is a parody account. Your snark is more elaborate.

        +1. Would read again.

        All that said, it is nice to have a little smidgen of turf that is not MA and not CT just sitting there, harmless and cute.Report

          If Trump gets the nomination, I wouldn’t be surprised if Rhode Island went his way. To remind everybody that they exist. And if their ornery heritage.Report

            @will-truman In order to provide material for my own parody account, I feel compelled to point out that the historical purpose of Rhode Island was to be a haven for dissenters and those “distressed of conscience.” (Heyo, Roger Williams, a man ahead of his time.) In the 80s and 90s, its purpose was to be a haven for LGBTQ people who liked beaches and didn’t feel like faking the Fire Island mystique for the summer. (Also townie LGBTQ people who liked cold beaches and didn’t mind having to deal with tourists all summer. If you know what I mean by “having to deal with” ;). ) While there are still plenty of all those folks hanging out in the place these days, what I hear from a friend who lived there is that its MAIN purpose is to be a haven for people who crave both fresh seafood AND traditional Italian food, and who like to own their own boats and/or write literary fiction with a distinct vein of melancholy.* (Full disclosure: said friend prefers North Dakota.)

            This is a fun game! *starts her own parody Twitter acc… oh wait, I’d have to tweet enough to be parodied first*

            *You know, as opposed to all that cheerful literary fiction you hear so much about.Report

        There ought to be some sort of minimum requirement for statehood based on summing population and area. These days, say people plus acres must exceed 10 million.Report
